‍‍‍English as a Second L‍‍‍anguage

Our Fix-it Phonics program has been especially designed for learning English as a second language. It is a structured course that uses the tried and tested Letterland system to teach phonics.

Fix-it Phonics is an all-inclusive, step-by-step programme. It has four structured levels that help children to quickly master all the English letter shapes and sounds as well as reading, writing and communication skills.

The first level of the Fix-it Phonics system introduces the English alphabet and first speaking skills.
Level 1 covers Aa–Zz and simple words.
